Those cold nights are keeping the pack cool enough that hot days don't overheat it.

OP here, I'm at 9,100 miles in my first five months of ownership. My Ecopias are completely destroyed on the shoulder due to my extremely aggressive cornering.

I WILL destroy this battery! :evil:

I don't know how I missed this thread before, but I have a track record of testing batteries in Arizona. You must be prepared to leave the car for testing for 7-9 months starting in April. A very low 10 bar or 9 bar car should be the best candidate. The car testing will be over normal road conditions in the Phoenix Metro Area. Cheers!

Is "B" mode is bad for battery? B Mode charge current = Quick Charge current.

It's only bad to the extent that the heat that it produces in the pack is excessive. So in cool or cold weather, no. In Hot weather, maybe.
